At my disposal was (my buddies) angle grinder, belt sander, hand drill, pliers and some very green metalsmithing abilities. It took a while, especially thinning the pieces. Learned a lot and found I really enjoy working with metal. The final torching is so gratifying after taking hours even days to get the piece right. They aren't CRK or Millit perfect, but I'm happy with the result. Being a golfer as well, I knew of two other pieces that needed clips. I've had these aluminum automatic ball mark tools since I started golfing, made by GT Knives. They make some automatic knives as well, these golf tools fire like no other tool I've found. However they needed a facelift. In this I took a lot of inspiration from different knifemaker's work I've seen over the years. Never liked the gold ano, removed that and gave it a brushed finish. I ground off the GT logo on the brass buttons and polished (sorry GT). I made two inlays to replace the ball markers, ground flush with the scales, polished torched and epoxied in. Made two clips and was able to find titanium replacement screws, cut to length and torched. Finally I torched the steel forks, which actually turned the colors I wanted.... I was very surprised.
